The sphinx wanted to know which one of the three gods stole the golden apple. Was it Horus, Anubis or Osiris?

''Osiris did,'' said Anubis.
''Anubis is lying,'' said Osiris

|chessgenius: Suppose Horus is telling the truth; this means the other two are lying. But if Anubis is lying then Osiris's statement is true, which is a contradiction.
Therefore Horus is lying about not stealing the apple, so he is the thief.|
